It's a testament to the show that, with everything else that's going on, 'Buridan's Ass' manages to make Lester's temporary escape from the hospital and subsequent planting of evidence... more than just an ancillary incident to pass the time.
The clever trick Fargo is pulling off is creating suspense and mystery even though viewers already know whodunit.
Lester Nygaard continued his decent into a moral wasteland... in what was one of the most emotionally dark and visually pretty episodes of Fargo to date.
Fargo Season 1 Episode 6 was an hour full of killing, manipulation, self-preservation and one quest to make good on a prior misdeed. Overall, the bad guys without remorse kept on winning.
There's a lot of Biblical and philosophical meat to chew on by now, but I have to admit that it makes my head hurt.
Though the series has winked at the movie before... By all rights, the comparison should be wildly unflattering. But if any episode of the series has earned the right to do it, it's "Buridan's Ass."
I can't believe this show made me feel so much for the character I had the least affection for in his last moments.
